The National Institutes of Health, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health have updated their policies for post-submission materials for applications submitted for due dates on or after September 25, 2017.
Post-submission materials are those submitted after submission of the grant application but prior to initial peer review. They are not intended to correct oversights or errors discovered after submission of the application, but rather allow applicants the opportunity to respond to unforeseen events.
New: For grant applications submitted for due dates on or after September 25, 2017, citations of issued patents will be accepted as post-submission materials.
For additional information on allowable and non-allowable post-submission materials see Additional Change to the NIH/AHRQ/NIOSH Policy on Post-Submission Materials NOT-OD-17-066.
